Welcome

Ever notice that the world is full of experts who have never actually done what they are "experts" at?

Many a business professor has never actually managed a business. Most business courses stress defining business terms but never actually teach the concepts of running a business.

This blog hopes to teach some of the terms and, at the same time, give some examples and lessons on running a business.

There will also be reviews of books on business listed here. Sometimes companies give me books to review. Regardless of where I get the book to review, I will give my honest opinion. If I was given the book to review I will always disclose that in the review.

I seek to start posting on 02 January 2012. Some of the posts will be recycled from some of my other blogs.

The reader should know that there is no one “Right Way” to conduct business that will apply in all situations. This blog is meant as a place to start. It is hoped that you will perform further research and consult professionals experienced in your particular business before making any important decisions.

Thriving in the Gig Economy by Marion McGovern

If you work on your own, or are thinking about striking out into the world of self-employment, even if just on a part-time basis, you need to read Thriving in the Gig Economy by Marion McGovern.


Once upon a time when a person said, “I am a consultant” or “I freelance”, that really meant “I am out of work with no hope of finding a job.”

This is not true in our new economy.  The author explains how this world has evolved and some of the possible changes that might be made in the future based upon changes in the political environment.
We give Thriving in the Gig Economy all five stars. This book is very well-written.  The author has years of experiences dating back to before there was such a term as “gig”. 
Everyone who intends to earn enough money to make ends meet in the future should seriously think about the gig economy.  This book will help you to know more about it.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

The Yoga of Leadership: A Practical Guide to Health, Happiness, And Inspiring Total Team Engagement by Tarra Mitchell ISBN: 978-0-9995082-1-3

If you are looking for a book about how to be a leader in a company, this isn’t it.  However, if you are looking for a book to help you be a much better leader, The Yoga of Leadership is exactly what you want.

The Yoga of Leadership does not teach you yoga movements.  Instead, it tells readers about how to use relaxation, like yoga, to be more in control of your stress and emotions and lead better.

You can attempt to lead from the rear. This usually does not work. 
The Yoga of Leadership tells us how we can be better leaders from the front.

I promise you that this book is not going to tell you to have a group hug and sing Kum By Ya, like so many of the management du jour books suggest.  You are not going to learn about conducting an offsite meeting or participating on high ropes.

The Yoga of Leadership gives the reader a way to become a better leader by becoming a better person overall.  You will learn about becoming a better listener and a better hearer.
We give this book all five stars.  It is well written and researched in the trenches.  Readers will learn more about life recipe and how to be an effective leader, without sacrificing family or health.

We wish some of our past leaders had read this book and put it into practice when we were working for them years ago.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

We are disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.

Jesus Take the Wheel

Recently, Suzanne played the song Jesus, Take the Wheel.  The story of this song is that the woman is overwhelmed by the events going on.  The most recent event is that she hits a sheet of black ice, way too fast.  As she is sliding around, she throws up her hands and turns it over to Jesus saying, “Jesus, take the wheel.”

We feel very much like that right now.  Current health conditions are keeping us away from our computers.  This means we cannot blog like we usually do.  Of course, this means our audience won’t be getting posts as often as they are used to.

Suzanne is suffering certain medical conditions that drag her down.  However, she is still waiting on me hand and foot since I am supposed to spend most of my time flat on my back with my feet propped up.

If we had a laptop computer, I could still post.  I could not make the YouTube videos from flat on my back, but I could still make the posts.  

In the meantime, my day is filled with reading and making hats on the round loom.

We are asking Jesus to take control of this situation, and He has.  We see a small check here and a rebate there that is helping to keep us going financially.

Just know that we want to be back online soon.  We will be posting sort of sporadically until at least the 6th of January.  We are praying this foot will heal sooner.  

Please keep us in your prayers.
